Catarrh of the stomach has long been considered fhe next thing to incurable. The usual symptoms are a full or bloat ing sensation after eating, accompanied sometimes with sour or watery risings, a formation of gases, causing pressure on the heart and lungs, and difficult breathing; headaches, llckle appetite, nervousness and a general played out, languid feeling. There is oltou a foul taste in the mouth, coated tongue, and if the in terior of the stomach could be seen it would show a slimy, inflamed condition. The cure for tnis common and obsti nate trouble is found in a treatment which causes the food to be readily, thoroughly digested before it has time to ferment and irritate the delicate mucous surfaces of the stomach, lo secure a prompt and healthy digestion is the one necessary tiling to do and when normal digestion is secured the catarrhal conditions will have disap peared. According to Dr. Harlandson, the safest and best treatment is to use after each meal a tablet composed of Dias tase, Aseptic Pepsin, a little Nux, Hol den Seal ami fruit acids. These tablets can now be found at all drug stores under the name of Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets, and not being a patent medi cine can be used with perfect safety and assurance that healthy appetite and tiiorough digestion will follow their reg ular use after meals.
